Take a look at the gif at the center of Paul’s indignation, if you haven’t already seen it:
Paul, who is seriously considering a run for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, is known for supporting a pared-down military approach that some critics say verges on isolationism. The gif was jokingly used to sum up his stance on military intervention in a single image.
“We have gossipy websites looking at the metric of how fast you clap. I think they demean themselves by putting that out,” Paul added.
The likely presidential candidate also addressed his recent straw poll win at the Conservative Political Action Conference last week, in which he took more than 26 percent of the vote to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s 21 percent.
"I think only one other person, Ronald Reagan, has won it three times. CPAC is a great event because it's full of a lot of young people. The only way you can win elections is to have that enthusiasm. We were really excited to get the victory,” he said.
